    At the next table in the cafe where I was working this morning, a young woman spent a whole hour talking excitedly to her older companion about herself, her hopes and aspirations for her job, her romantic relationship and her home. It was hard to avoid the impression that she thought herself the centre of the Universe, her dreams eminently fascinating and important. Is this simply what young people or “millennials” (people born after 1980) are like these days? Fuelled by the endless opportunity for self-promotion and self-reflection on social media, combined with a wider culture that’s arguably placed greater...

    One of the latest polls shows a majority of millenials would prefer to live under a socialist, fascist or communist system rather than a capitalist one. One of the Virginia Democrats elected in last week's special election. Lee Carter, is a young unreconstructed socialist, and a member of the far-left Democratic Socialists of America. That organization has seen a fivefold increase in its membership, from about 6,000 to now 30,000. Disillusion with free markets and capitalism is often cited as the reason for this phenomenon. According to an interview with a millennial socialist in The Guardian: “Everyone has student loan...
  • At Least My Generation Will Have Our Revenge On The Millennials

    11/16/2017 4:26:21 AM PST · by Kaslin · 56 replies ^ | November 16, 2017 | Kurt Schlichter
    With all the awful things happening now – the discord, the anger, the stupidity – at least those of my generation can rest easy knowing that the Millennials are going to suffer after we’re gone. Sure, I’m going to die a lot sooner than them – unless someone invents some sort of expensive life extension potion that I can buy but they can’t because they will still be paying off their degrees in Oppression Studies and Virtue Signaling Arts until the year 2083. But at least I’ll know that we left them a suitably terrible world, since they are a...

    eCommerce has been shaping much of the world’s economy recently. One of those that are profiting from this is the global luxury industry. Further helping are Chinese travellers. This industry is seen to have a recent growth of six percent, after a rather stagnant 2016. Total market value of the industry is at a cool $304 billion. This is in part due to much activity in the Chinese market. China leads the way for global luxury spenders. Also helping this growth are the global millennialMillennials are also known as Generation Y, Echo Boomers or Millenniums. They encompass the age group...
  • Poll: Nearly Half of Millennials Would Prefer Living in a Communist or Socialist Country

    When former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee heard about survey of America’s millennials, he was able to find a bright spot even though the survey showed vast support for communism and socialism. “A shocking new survey of Millennials found that half say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than in a capitalist democracy,” Huckabee wrote on his Facebook page. “Well, good news, kids: thanks to capitalism, there are planes leaving the US for one of those 24/7,” Huckabee wrote.
  • Is It Time for a New Jesus Movement Among Jewish Millennials?

    11/05/2017 7:47:57 AM PST · by Kaslin · 11 replies ^ | November 5, 2017 | Michael Brown
    When I came to faith in Jesus in 1971 as a heroin-shooting, LSD-using, 16-year-old, Jewish, hippie rock drummer, I had no idea I was part of a worldwide spiritual happening known as the Jesus People Movement or Jesus Revolution. It even merited a cover story on Time Magazine, June 21, 1971. Interestingly, Jewish young people made up a conspicuously high number of these newly born-again hippies and rebels and radicals in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Today, a new poll commissioned by Jews for Jesus makes me wonder if we could be on the verge of a similar spiritual movement today,...

    RUSH: The Daily Caller: “Nearly one-in-five Millennials consider Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong-Un ‘heroes,’ according to a Thursday poll. The poll demonstrated an increase in acceptance of socialism and communism among American Millennials and was released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Fund. One-half of Millennials and one-third of Americans would prefer to reside in a socialist or communist nation instead of a capitalist democracy, according to the poll.” Here’s some numbers. Twenty-three percent of Americans between 21 and 29 consider Stalin a hero. Twenty-six percent of them consider Lenin a hero. These are two of the biggest mass murderers...

    ‘This report clearly reveals a need for educating our youth on the dangerous implications of socialist ideals’ In a Halloween tweet that’s since gone viral, Donald Trump Jr. jokingly (although who really knows these days?) took the opportunity to impart an important political lesson to his cute little daughter. I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism. — Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) October 31, 2017 Perhaps he should share his wisdom with millennials. According to the latest survey from...

    McDonald's, Outback Steakhouse, and several dozen other food and hospitality retailers are using daily paychecks as a means to give low-wage workers more flexibility with their finances. Steve Barha, CEO of Instant Financial, the technology company enabling retailers' move to same-day pay, said the option is partly meant to cater to a preference shared by millennial employees that quick cash is better than waiting two weeks for a lump sum. "Basically, their life is real-time," Barha told Business Insider. "Their communication is real-time. Their transportation is real-time, with Uber and Lyft. So this program really aligns with their real-time life...

    Note: Normal people might find some of this offensive. (We hope. Dear Lord, please!) Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Answer yes either way and that might make you an alt-leftie. Marketwatch just ran an interesting piece headlined, “Why millennials are ditching religion for witchcraft and astrology.” It didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t know. Young people are embracing the occult faster than you can spell it. This shouldn’t be surprising. They’ve been getting bombarded with witches, spells, demons, vampires and more for decades -- from Harry Potter to Twilight. It only makes sense that they...

    When Coco Layne, a Brooklyn-based producer, meets someone new these days, the first question that comes up in conversation isn’t “Where do you live?” or “What do you do?” but “What’s your sign?” Interest in spirituality has been booming in recent years while interest in religion plummets, especially among millennials. The majority of Americans now believe it is not necessary to believe in God to have good morals, a study from Pew Research Center released Wednesday found. The percentage of people between the ages of 18 and 29 who “never doubt existence of God” fell from 81% in 2007 to...

Casey, Jr., the Army's chief of staff, administers the oath of enlistment to 26 recruits in New York City, April 1, 2009.The military is facing a growing recruiting crisis: 71% of Americans between 17 and 24 can’t meet the minimum criteria for service, which places the burden of service on an ever-small and shrinking pool of troops with a family history of joining the military. At an Oct. 12 Heritage Foundation panel in Washington, D.C., Rep.

    Thanks to the internet, it’s not hard to make a six-figure salary from anywhere in the world. Our newsfeeds are filled with the anomalies, millennials who create and scale businesses that consistently generate over $100,000 in annual revenue. But that reality isn’t an option for most, and not everyone is ready to take the plunge into self-employment. An overarching theme of Deloitte’s 2017 Millennial Survey was the desire for both flexibility and stability at work. In other words, millennials want the stability of a good, consistent paycheck but also seek flexibility in work location, hours, and the ability to move...

    As the staggering national student loan debt tally sits at an all-time high of $1.33 trillion, according to the Department of Education, many Millennials say they would go to extreme lengths to wipe their slate clean. According to a new survey from Credible, a personal finance website, 50% of all respondents (ages 18-34) said they would give up their right to vote during the next two presidential elections in order to never have to make another loan payment again.

    Americans continue to get fatter and it’s delivering a huge blow to the country, both in higher health care costs and undercutting military recruiting, according to a huge new study. The 14th annual State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America report from the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation bluntly reported that 70 percent of the nation is obese or overweight. And while the rate of obesity growth is leveling off, the costs aren’t. The report, for example, said additional health care for obese adults and children is $150 billion a year and billions...

It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.” 3. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.” 4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels....

    “If I pack up my toys and go home, there are people in red MAGA hats who would be saying, ‘Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.’” Kristen Soltis Anderson is losing faith in her party. And that should trigger alarms for Republican leaders concerned about the GOP’s long-term health. Anderson is a smart and telegenic young Republican pollster. She has specialized in studying how the party can improve its anemic performance among the Millennial generation, which will pass the right-leaning baby boomers to become the largest generation of eligible voters in 2018. Now she is wondering...

    When I was a college freshman in the early 1990s, I lived in a dorm that was as sterile as a hospital room, a 193-square-foot box with white cinderblock walls that I shared with two other guys. The bathroom was also shared—with an entire floor. Such basic living quarters greeted generations of college students before me. For much of the history of American higher education, dorms and other student amenities—from dining halls to recreational centers—were an afterthought to the primary business of campus planning: grand academic buildings. In fact, in the 1840s, the president of Brown University described dorm life...
